Choosing the right style of window covering for your home is the perfect way to set off a room or your entire house, but with so many choices in terms of designs, styles, and materials ––– how do you know where to get started?

Shopping for window coverings can be stressful, but this will make the search much easier for you. Whether you need to replace old window coverings around your home or go for an entirely new look to change the dynamic of your home, updating your window coverings is the perfect way to spruce the place up and make it look like new.

Here are some tips on how you can select the perfect window coverings for your home.

1) Shutters

There are so many benefits of installing shutters in your home. Shutters help you control the temperature and light of your room while adding a high degree of privacy to your home or the room that you put your shutters in.

Shutters serve as an excellent complement to rooms, providing an elegant or sophisticated look to a room, without being too gaudy. They are affordable and come in a variety of different colors, materials, and textures that you can use to customize the look of your home and shutter.

2) Shades

Shades are another great window covering that you can use to control or block light while giving you some added privacy as well. One of the best aspects of the shades is that they come in so many different styles including roller shades, cellular shades, Roman shades, and bamboo shades.

Roller shades are the shades that you see that roll from the top-down, on your windows. They have a simple and timeless look that you can incorporate just about anywhere in your home. They are easy to use, easy to install, and are a simple way to create shade and privacy indoors.

Cellular shades can either come in a single cell or double cell, which describes the layers that the shades have. Cellular shades are unique in that their layers create honeycomb-shaped air pockets that provide insulation and shade for your home. For this reason, thicker, multi-layered cellular shades are great for blocking out heat and sun in hot climates, but they can also work well for holding the heat in your home in cold weather.

3) Blinds

If you are looking for a classic choice that fits a lower budget, blinds are some of the most inexpensive coverings you can use for your windows. You can get them in simple plastic, aluminum, faux wood, and lots of other materials, which gives you the freedom to go more expensive and nicer or inexpensive and functional with the blinds in your home.

Choosing the Right Window Covering For you

Where is your covering going and what do you need it to accomplish with it?

In choosing the best window coverings for you, you should take into consideration

  • Where they are going to go (what room)
  • How much light the window or windows get
  • Your climate from season to season
  • If you are going for fashion, function, or both
  • What your budget is

This will help you gauge what types of window coverings you have available to you, and give you a better idea of what is going to fit your style and functionality needs the best. From there, you can choose a variety of materials and styles that fit the colors and textures of your home.
